"Can Trade Liberalization Promote Growth in Agriculture: Evidence from China and India"
by Deb, Surajit

A number of studies have evaluated the possible implications from agricultural trade liberalization in the context of developing economies. The results of these analyses have either differed in opinion or failed to convincingly establish as to whether the trade liberalization would contribute to the growth prospects of developing agricultures. A limitation of the earlier analyses has been that it did not shed much light on whether the impact of trade liberalization could be positive on the agricultural growth. The main objective of this study is to examine the hypothesis whether the trade liberalization process had led to growth in agriculture by employing data pertaining to the two large economies in the Asian region, viz., China and India for the time period 1976 to 2007. The statistical evidence based on various indicators of agricultural trade liberalization and growth indicates the presence of significant causal relations from trade liberalization to agricultural growth.
